Solana Solar Generating Plant
Solana, the largest parabolic trough plant in the world, is a 280 megawatt (MW) installation with six hours of thermal storage. This technolgy allows energy to be dispatched as needed during cloudy periods and after sunset. Solana, therefore, is able to generate electricity well into the evening to help meet consumption demand.
